Have a look at this website. It will tell you what to expect on all English and Welsh birth, marriage and death certificates:-

Basically you will find these details:-

Register Number
Date and Place of Death
Cause Of Death
Name and Surname of the Deceased
Informant's Details
Date of Registration
Registrar's Signature

However some of the details of a persons death was described in very gruesome terms. Personally I find them absolutely fascinating.

I agree NanaSue.

I love "Visitation of God" as a cause of death.

The lady with the "heart of gold" and the "gentle approach" likes to read about the gruesome details of a person's death?
